Its a busy day for me today, I release Orac into the wild, first on the Organelle , but it will be coming very soon to rPI and PiSound.
I know many of you want the Organelle patches on the rPI, and Orac is the vehicle Ive had planned for quite a while to make this happen.
not only have I got 50+ modules, but it supports midi learn, presets, remote control via osc.
(Its free, its open source and ‘complete’ i.e. its released today on the Organelle)
theres still a few things to do for the rPI, which I’ll explain below,
but to whet your appetite…
(thanks to loopop to doing a video to help spread the word)
Ive got a more detailed how to video too, not as good as loopops
status for rPI
Its still in development for a few reasons, (aka things to do)
- currently it can be controlled via a Push 2 or editing config files, I want a more approachable solution
- packaging, I want to be easy to install, and easy to launch Orac.
the interface solution I have planned is a ‘web’ interface, so that you can setup and control the rack over wifi, on your phone/pad/computer… and of course once its setup, you’ll then be able to disconnect that if you wish, and just control via Midi or OSC
the whole project is open source, so if you want to get involved give me a shout
In particular if there is someone with experience in browser development, that could be handy to speed things up a bit.
